Did Hugh Jackman Break a WWE Wrestler’s Jaw While Pretending to Break a WWE Wrestler’s Jaw?

what is this I don't even

There is nothing that I can say about this that will cause it to make more sense, no description of the contents of this video that will bring it into greater relief, except that this is undoubtedly a publicity bit for Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots: The Movie Real Steel, which comes out in two weeks.

Also, that announcer shouts “X-men-esque!”, which might be the nerdiest thing I have heard all week.

So now that you’ve absorbed that, let me tell you that Hugh Jackman‘s staged punch up there may have not met WWE Raw‘s high standards for fake violence.

Earlier this week, Dolph Ziggler, the wrestler who Jackman slugs in the above video, tweeted:

land in Bikini Bottom 9:30 am, MRI scheduled for 1 pm…..possible fractured jaw #thanksBatman

Which could mean one of three things:

  • Dolph Ziggler was attacked by Batman.
  • Dolph Ziggler is pretending that his jaw is broken because, WWE.
  • Hugh Jackman broke Dolph Ziggler’s jaw, and it caused Dolph Ziggler to mistake him for Christian Bale.

It appears that Ziggler did indeed receive a hairline mandibular fracture, from which we wish him a speedy recovery, perhaps through some kind of advanced healing ability.
